Thanks for visiting our Elder Conversations page. If you missed the video we shared in our service on April 2nd, we encourage you to watch it here. More details will be coming soon!




In April, it was announced that the elders had decided to study the question of the eligibility of women serving on the elder board here at South. First and foremost, as we discern God’s will for South, we will study scripture to seek an answer. One part of the discernment process is the listening phase, where we gather as much information as possible regarding the subject. We believe God speaks to his people in many different ways, so in addition to scripture, we will consider the opinions of theologians and voices from our community. These listening forums are a way for us to hear from you. We will be recording these meetings so we can better capture your opinions.

Three elders (two lay elders and one staff) will be at each forum. If the current forums fill up, additional forum dates/times will become available.
